This morning, Patrick and I went to school for parent/teacher conferences. It is a joy to sit and hear the girls' teachers commend our children for all of the good that they are doing in school. Each one of them is so unique and special. They all approach school in different ways. I was a happy mama when I hear that for the most part the training that they are receiving at home is reflected at school. They all made super academic grades, but even more importantly is how kind and respectful and obedient their teachers said they were. We were quite proud of them. After conferences, Daddy had to go to work, but I took the kids to Sonic for lunch and to Target for a gift. It's been a nice day having the kids at home with Michael and I. Some days it is just too quiet around here without them!
